    1. It seems you are in PPPoE mode. Make sure you switch off the modem when you do not use internet. You connection will be active as long as modem is ON (usage will be feeble if computer is shutdown, still be on the safe side as you are on an unlimited plan).

    2. Very important, you won't get full 2.5 GB day usage for this month. 2.5 GB is for 30 days. Your day time usage for this month will be 2.5 X (4/30) only. So be careful what you use on day time. During 2 - 8 am you can use as much as you can.

    3. BSNL NU plans had an issue, in order to get 2 - 8 am free, your connection should start at 2.00 am and end at 8.00 am. Earlier you have to do it manually or using tools (search NU Schedulers in the search box above). It seems BSNL portal does it automatically these days (in some circles). When you have access to portal, check if there is an automatic break up of connection at 2.00 am and 8.00 am. If not, you need to do it manually or using a scheduler.

    4. BSNL has 5 usage portals according to your location. Please mention your SSA (always mention location for such queries) and we can help you find the correct portal.

    Me too on PPPoE mode. It is a good set up. No need to change it. Simply switch off the modem after use.

    I think no. If I am correct, minimum hire period of a plan is one month. Home Combo 600 is a good plan. Why do you want to change it ?

    If you are particular about an unlimited plan, you can choose UL 499 which gives 256 Kbps unlimited (speed of Home Combo 600 is 2 Mbps, 8 times the speed of UL 499). Please note that you need to pay telephone rent extra in this plan. I am on UL 750 which give 512 Kbps unlimited.

    Is your SSA Ganaur or Sonepat ? If yes, try and log in using your 14 digit portal ID and password (which is normally password). Let me know if you are facing any issues. Also use a bandwidth meter from Networx or Shaplus to keep an eye on your usage. It will work even when the BSNL portal is down. But remember, values on BSNL portal is final. Counter check the values with portal at regular intervals.

    What is that you didn't understand in this ?

    Please explain 2.5 X (4/30) (
    Usage per month 2560MB X multiplied by 4 days ( or 5 days ).Then divided by 30 or 31 days gives you this month's usage quota.

    As I mentioned, 2.5 GB is for 30 days. Your connection starts on 27 th. So 27, 28, 29 , 30. You have 4 days not 30 days. So your day time limit will be 4/30 of 2.5 GB.

    1 GB = 1024 MB

    1024 X 2.5 = 2560 MB

    4/30 = 0.133

    so, 2560 X 0.133 = 341.33 MB is what you have as day time browsing limit for this month.

    BB Home Combo UL 625 is the combo version of UL 499. Speed is same as UL 499, but you need not pay telephone rent in this plan. Also there is 100 free calls. But the rent is Rs. 625 + 10.3 % tax instead of Rs. 499 + 10.3 % tax. Choose it only if you come under an urban exchange. For rural exchange, both plans are more or less same.

    @ essbebe

    Will they give 5 days ? Or 4 ? Didn't notice your edit while posting this.

    Appears default setting in their usage computer is for 30days /per month.
    Anyway we can use revised approx 5/30 or 1/6 of 2560MB
    as possible quota from 27th Aug to 31st Aug ( 5 days)
    which gives result 426MB approx

    BSNL staff are known for giving misleading information. That is why I spend a few hours in this forum helping users to get through the traps they set. You can call it my sweet revenge to BSNL. :)

    Billing cycle of BSNL is from 1 st to 30 th. For August you need to pay only Rs. { 600 X (4/30) } + 10.3 % tax, not Rs. 600 + 10.3 % tax.

    Hope it is clear now. If you need any info, feel free to ask.

    If this is a new telephone connection/broadband connection, Bill for Aug 5 days and Sept 30 Days will be combined and sent as
    ONE bill in October 2011.
    5days BB usage/rent Security deposit ( inst charges waived )
    + modem deposit if on rental etc +telephone security deposit ( installation charges )+ Tax at 10.3% ( not for security deposit )
    Plus full bill Rs 600/=BB usage September 2011 etc

    Thereafter you should get a monthly bill for Oct /1st to Oct 31st in November etc.
    Bsnl Billing is from 1st of the month .
    Airtel has different dates for usage. 20th 23rd 25th etc

    @ Janak Bhutani

    Please check with the accounts officer (ask for his phone no.) whether you get 4 or 5 days this month. Do update the result here.

    Billing cycle of BSNL is from 1 st to 30 th. For August you need to pay only Rs. { 600 X (4/30) } + 10.3 % tax, not Rs. 600 + 10.3 % tax.

    which will be Rs. 79.80

    Also you need to pay installation charges (if any).

    Which modem do you use ? Did you get it from BSNL ? Mention model and make.

    Rs. 79.80 + 10.3 % tax = Rs. 88 for August .

    Rs. 600 + 10.3 % tax = Rs. 661.80 for September onwards.

    hmm, nice. I will say you are lucky. BSNL has stopped supplying modems in many circles.

    If you are ok with the speed, go ahead. Earlier (some one year back), me too was on 256 Kbps unlimited. It is slow but manageable. Any doubts are welcome.

    Apply online, use links mentioned in post no.7 .
